Not sure if this is the right place, mods can move to appropriate place if need be. Anyways, I know most people are not fans of Crazydevy products for various reasons let alone when they first announced this sword (those ppl can stop reading now) But for those of us who are closet fans but weren't willing to fork out the original $70 asking price, they're currently on clearance at BBTS for $42. I just wanted to give people a heads up for anybody who cared for one (I do not work for BBTS). I always wanted a sword for my US Fort Max but eBay prices for original Japanese version always exceeded $70. I felt that CDMW-12 was the next best option. http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=CRD10018&mode=retail Cheers.
